Can herbs harm my unborn baby?
If you are self-prescribing using herbs bought over the counter, then you may inadvertently harm your baby as not all herbs are safe to take during pregnancy. They may upset the hormonal balance of the foetus, causing problems. Always consult a qualified herbalist before taking any herbs whilst pregnant.
If the herbs are prescribed by a qualified herbalist who knows you are pregnant, then the herbs shouldn't harm your unborn baby and should be safe to take. Chinese herbs can actually support a growing baby and help it thrive during pregnancy making sure it grows according to schedule.
I've helped several women who's baby is not growing enough with Chinese herbs. In only 2 weeks the baby bounces back to it's correct size. I've also prevent many miscarriages by using Chinese herbs during pregnancy.
